Etihad Airways Enhances Its Onboard Food Offering With the Addition of ‘Weqaya' Menu Items
  • Collaboration with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi to bring healthy eating options on-board its flights
  • Etihad Airways becomes the first airline in the region to achieve Weqaya status
Abu Dhabi,  UAE, April 9, 2018:  Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has collaborated with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, to introduce ‘Weqaya,’ a range of healthy food items, on-board its flights and in its lounges in Abu Dhabi.
 
Weqaya, meaning 'prevention,' is a programme established by the Department of Health - Abu Dhabi with the aim of encouraging people to eat a healthy and balanced diet to promote good health and wellbeing.
 
Starting in April, Etihad Airways will begin to offer a number of Weqaya dishes on menus in First and Business Class long-haul and ultra-long haul outbound flights from Abu Dhabi, and First and Business Class lounges in Abu Dhabi International Airport.
 
Mohammad Al Bulooki, Executive Vice President Commercial, Etihad Airways, said: “Etihad consistently engages with its guests to better understand their needs, and then delivers products and services that exceeds their expectations. The addition of Weqaya menu items further enhances our F&B offering, and is a testimony to our airline’s commitment to continue to provide premium products to our guests.”
 
Linda Celestino, Vice President Guest Experience & Delivery, added: “We are delighted to support the Department of Health - Abu Dhabi in this initiative. As the first airline in the region to achieve Weqaya status, we are both honoured and excited to promote health and wellness not just in Abu Dhabi, but also onboard our flights.”
 
Last year, Etihad introduced Weqaya food items to restaurants in its headquarters, further highlighting its commitment to the health and well-being of its employees.
 
Dr. Omniyat Al Hajeri, Director of Public Health Division, said: 'We are working at the Department of Health to increase the availability of healthy food options and promote a culture that embraces healthy eating among all groups in the society across the Emirate. Cooperation with Etihad Airways is a demonstration that following a healthy lifestyle is our ultimate goal and our efforts towards “a healthier Abu Dhabi” knows no boundaries or distances.” 
 
Al Hajeri added: “Our cooperation with Etihad Airways is growing stronger by opening new prospects for broadening our collaboration horizons. Last year we worked together on the implementation of “Weqaya Food Specifications”, in Etihad Airways restaurants and cafes. With the announcement of healthy meal options being offered on Etihad Airways flights, we take a step closer together towards the wellness and health of our community.”
